Recovery...

Well, I have had a few people call wondering about Haley, so I thought I better update this! She is doing well! She finally ate tonight at about 7 pm. That is the first time she's eaten in at least 4 days. I don't even want to think about what she weighs now... I got some motrin down her last night...had to hold her down kicking, screaming and gagging, but it got her to calm down enough to sleep and take a few ounces of fluid. Which kept her out of the hospital. She woke up in the middle of the night, and I gagged her with more motrin and got a few more ounces of fluid in her. She woke up this morning happy, and in no more pain (that I can tell). Other than her refusing to eat all day, she has done remarkably well. Tonight, our nice NP called to check on her. I really like him, he's great! He said he would call with culture results on Monday. Hopefully, they come back okay, so that she doesn't have to get more testing done. So, we're just trying to enjoy the weekend.

As I have been reading everyone's blog about Valentine's Day, I have to admit, I'm a bit sad. It was all I could do to survive the day, no cute decor, notes, gifts. Troy hates Valentine's Day, and any other holiday that retailers try to make him feel guilty. I did manage to make the kids heart pancakes, but I didn't have food coloring, so I tried to slip in a few red hots, but I didn't want to add enough to make it pink and completely alter the taste. So, they were just normal heart pancakes with a hint of red hot. Troy got home, and I told him I wasn't making dinner and I wasn't going anywhere. He ran and got us Subway. Heidi brought by a piece of her delicious cake she made, and we each took a few bites, and went to bed, and crashed around 9:30. We were too tired to even stay up for the news. I really am glad others had such a great holiday! I had high hopes and ambitions, but then life happens....what are you gonna do? There's always next year, right?

I'm SO glad that she's feeling better. I thought about calling you today, but when I was just about to dial I realized it was dinner time.

You deserve a date after your whole week. Did you ever find your wallet?

And you lost your wallet on top of all that?

Glad she is doing better! You really need to slow down.
